Recommended Hoist with Winch to Install 5th Wheel Hitch in Truck Bed


I have a F350SD, 2017. A Curt Q16 hitch with slider..will this accommodate removal and install of this hitch?

The Viking Solutions Rack Jack Hoist with Winch for 2" Hitches - 300 lbs # 310-VRJ001 will work to remove and install the hitch based on the Curt Q16 hitch weight with sliding base. For an easier and more stable system, you may want to consider the MaxxTow Hydraulic Pickup Truck Crane for 2" Hitches - 1,000 lbs # MT70238. I recommend using the Demco 5th Wheel Lifting Bracket # DM6100 that will fit into the jaws of your hitch where the king pin would sit for a strong connection for either unit to work well for you.

The crane will likely not be able to place the hitch in the rails or pucks due to arm length, so some manual lifting will likely still be involved. Getting the hitch in and out of the bed is where this would be an huge help.
